Celebrate Independence Day at the Zoo – For Free!
June 21, 2012 —Independence Day is set to be a fun day as the Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation foots the bill for free entry to the zoo for everyone on July 4th. This is a great opportunity to get together with friends and see what’s new at the Zoo!
“Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation is delighted to sponsor this special day for everyone to come out and have a great time at the Zoo,” says Foundation President Chuck Dominick. “We see this as a great way to give back to the community that has given us so much support over the years.”
The Zoo has had lots of animal activity this spring. Here are a few of the new critters you’ll see at the Zoo:
- Lila the Alpaca has joined Barnyard companions Pano and Inca to round out our South American alpaca/llama trio
- Our female Patagonian cavy now has a new mate named Dylan
- A third non-releasable Band-tailed pigeon is settling into his new home in the Aviary
- In another avian adventure, three Orinoco geese will join the Flamingos at their pool sometime in July
- A new colony of Russian honeybees has moved into the Barnyard observation hive, plus there’s a second colony of Italian honeybees in the regular beehive out back
- Big Thunder, a Giant Flemish rabbit joined the Barnyard earlier this year and a Black widow spider will soon be on display too
If you haven’t met the Zoo’s new Indian muntjac deer yet, you’ll find him hanging out contentedly with the Red pandas.
So come on down to the Zoo any time between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4th, and enjoy a free day at your local zoo.
